Question about Philips 180MT (Silver) 18.1" LCD Monitor

TV works fine but computer input gets horizontal tearing after warmup

Both worked fine till one day the computer input started a horizontal tearing after it warms up. TV still works great. I can keep using it as a TV but would like to use it as a monitor also again. Please do not suggest refresh rate or a different pc as a solution, I am not a moron. If there is a part going bad please be as specific as possible in the description and location of the part and if you know of a source for replacement parts. Thanks in advance for the good answers!

    So it sounds like it is one board that handles both inputs, thus probably a expensive part if even available. The unit is a few years old and not in warrentee so I guess it will just be a TV

The good news..
The bad news, The problem is the video logic board inside the monitor. Replacement is the only option and you will have to beg Philips to even get the location of a replacement board if it's not still under warranty. Then sell your first born child to get it.

The explanation.
The video logic board takes all the input signals and sends them to a central processing unit that then sends the signal to the panel itself. If any of the inputs are damaged, then only that section will fail. The monitor input side of your board is dying, most likely due to overheating so collapses after it reaches it's thermal limits.
Chances are the vertical/horizontal input from the video cable is being shorted inside the IC that controls video from the PC. This is a common fault in many Samsung LCD monitors as well.

    There is one upside..

    You can always sell it as a faulty unit on Ebay etc to help cover the costs of a new unit, you may be surprised what people are willing to pay for it still.

WHY WONT IT WORK??


Sounds like LOT fault. Check and replace damaged component/s at its horizontal scan output section circuit. Check the LOT (Line Output Transformer) too for damage. Replace the horizontal scan output transistor. Check the input voltage to LOT. If the voltage is absent check the feeder resistor; if any. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" or "Magazine" will make surf easy. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

White horizontal lines covering picture on Toshiba 51HC85


The set uses a Hyper board inside that processes all signals, it is well known for this issue, board no longer available=reason is quite simple : about a dozen tiny surface mounted filter caps on that board with age dry out, at first it will work after warms up as poor caps regain some capacitance and seem to be ok.

Buy a new set, you can send that board out and have it repaired/rebuilt but the last one I saw which was under extended warranty cost about 200 just for the board rebuild.

In the last 4 years Here on Fixya I have encountered only 2 people who were able with instructions had the skill to remove the board and replace those caps, both were top notch computer repair techs.

Sony TV not turning on


Chances are the Power Supply failed because the Horizontal circuit failed. It would not be out of line if the repair cost ran 250.00 plus.
It is probably not worth fixing due to the age of the set.
Hope this helps,

Sony KP46WT510 picture goes back and fortto horizontal color bars


The pictures show the result of a bad terminal input board. You can verify this by checking the inputs. Connect devices to the board and try different inputs. You will most likely find this problem on the tuner and component input were your DVI and composite video will be ok. If it is the same on all inputs replace the A board

RCA pix tearing horizontal lines


Get an ESR meter and check all the electrolytic capacitors in the set! I am sure you will find many decoupler and coupling capacitors that are on the edge or too high in ESR.
